Most mics will work if the plug fits the socket on camera and it fits on the hot shoe okay, I never use Sony mics on my Sony camera, you end up paying for the name, not the item.

How to project an image from an external device from a Sony Camcorder HDR-PJ240E?


Simple solution. You connected an output to an output. The Camcorder 'outputs' image from it so you need to plug it into an input on your TV. You will then see image from the camcorder on your tv.

Intelligent Accessory Shoe


Sony does not currently make an input adapter for connecting external microphones to camcorders.
However, Sony manufactures a number of different external microphones for camcorder use that do not require an input adapter. Depending on your camcorder model, you may be able to find a compatible external microphone from the Sony® Parts and Accessories Sales Center or Sony Style Web site.
NOTE: Not all camcorders have an input jack or Active Interface Shoe for connecting an external microphone.

I like the Sony VX2100 for the price. It does provide a 3.5mm mic input however be sure that your mic configuration will work with this camera. If you have an XLR mic then you will need an adpater.

The Sony HDR-HC1 also has a mic input but I have had problems capturing good sound from it.
